Due to popular demand, “Barbara Ernst Prey: East Meets West” has been extended through Labor Day at Blue Water Fine Arts. The show showcases a collection of 40 never-before-seen watercolors, dry-brush and oil paintings. In this exhibit, Prey’s monumental paintings take a new direction, continuing the tradition of American landscape painting while examining the urgency of open spaces.

The exhibit fills the 100-year-old former Village Inn and is dedicated to the memory of S. Lane Faison, Prey’s mentor at Williams College and dean of the so-called Williams Art Mafia. Blue Water Fine Arts is located in the village, on Main Street/Route 131. It is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 372-8087; email inquiries@bluewaterfinearts.com; or visit BlueWaterFineArts.com.
